The 2014 WGA Nominations Are In! But Which Shows Came Out on Top?


Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul in Breaking Bad


Nominations for the 2014 Writers Guild Awards were announced earlier today, paying homage to a slew of some of television's best and brightest shows. For example, in news that should surprise absolutely no one, AMC’s popular hit drama 'Breaking Bad' led the pack with four impressive nods, alongside Netflix’s freshman superstar 'Orange is the New Black'...which was somehow entered as a comedy? (Prison is hilarious, you guys!)
